We have just returned from a 3 night break. We arrived Friday 18th Dec after heavy snow fall. The driveway to the site is a couple of miles long and we got stuck in the snow. The staff were great and were there to help people get moving again (although it did take time). Check in was fast and we were shown to our cabin (No 1) and given a tour. The cabins are amazing. Ours was a Golden Oak and it was very comfortable, spaceous, well equiped and had the massive bonus of a hot tub which was amazing in the snow!! The cabins are lovely and warm (even in sub zero temperatures) and the log burning stoves give that extra cosyness. Cabin number 1 had a great position and was not really overlooked. Some of the higher numbered cabins are quite close together. They offer free bacon sandwiches at the welcome meeting but get there early as there was not enough to go round. The site offers lots of activities but due to the weather these were not available. But some playing in the snow, lots of DVD's and games made this a most enjoyable, relaxing holiday. Didn't buy any food on site as it was very pricey. There is no mobile phone coverage on the site but you only have to walk for a couple of minutes up one of the footpaths to find it. The staff did seem to be struggling with the weather and were not geared up equipment wise to keep the long driveway passable. On Sunday they recommended that we leave a day early as the driveway had been cleared by a local farmer. We decided not to take there advice and stayed the last night and were pleased that we made the right decision as the road remained passable for us to leave monday morning. Overall we would strongly recommend this site and will definately be returning.
